WiFi Tracker

WiFi Tracker


Wifi Tracker is a WiFi scanner that can help you see the state of wireless networks in your area.

Ever wanted to sniff out and plot those elusive open WiFi access points?

This wi-fi scanner uses your GPS and WiFi in combination to scan for Wi-Fi hotspots, then saves their location to a file which you can then export a KML file to Google Earth , export to Kismet, or use realtime web uploads to scan and upload in realtime!

Excellent for wardriving in your car, to scan lots of hotspots - it can handle logging the position of thousands of accesspoints without crashing and without posting duplicates.

Quite useful for site surveys (scanning for unsecured Wi Fi access points), or surveying large areas as part of a larger security audit. Has slow down options for scanning whilst walking as well, so you can go for a stroll or a run around a site and the scanner will still work without consuming lots of battery power

It can also be used if you just have a passing interest in seeing what is out there - for example you could take a drive around your city centre and see the state of access points (open, secured, insecure, etc).

The CSV export lets you export the data for manipulation in your favourite spreadsheet editor (Excel, OpenOffice / LibreOffice), or visualise access points using the KML export.

WiFi Tracker also knows about who made the accesspoint that it has found so can detect most accesspoints made by netgear, d-link, 3com, apple, linksys, and so on

If the Torque app is also running on the device, and you have a high-resolution (QStarz 818XT) GPS device connected to that app, then WiFi Tracker will augment it's GPS data automatically with the higher resolution data from Torque

If you have any suggestions, drop me an email using the 'contact developer' link and I'll see what I can do!

User reviews of WiFi Tracker
Works well, integration with Wigle is great and if you spend a lot of time in a certain place, this is very handy for building up a nice list of open/free wifi connections

Very Nice App Almost dose what I want. Would it be possible to only log AP which I have credentials for? It logs so many AP's that it takes too long to map only the ones I want.

Awesome app It finds all the open source wifi including the ones that are open but still need a password what I don't like about it it picks up wireless printers, ruku players , chromecasts. Also, that app thinks that the traffic sensors along interstates our wifi. Sure be nice if there was a way to censor all these devices that are not wifi.
